LINC Instructor

Newcomer Centre of Peel

Nominator Comments:

Rani has been a teacher at the Newcomer Centre of Peel for the last four years, teaching a challenging Canadian Language Benchmarks Level 1 class.

Some of her students have never spoken English before, and others are unable to read and write in their mother tongue. These factors create a classroom environment where even simple communication is a challenge, and conducting a successful class, even harder.

Despite this, Rani uses her personality and physical gestures to employ creative and innovative teaching methods. Her classroom activities and lessons are relevant and interesting, and bridge the communication gap between herself and her students, and the class as a whole.
